Project Description

The Transport Access Program (TAP) is a NSW Government initiative delivering safe, modern and accessible public transport across the state. Pulse Acoustics has conducted Noise and Vibration Impact Assessments on a number of station upgrades as part of the third tranche of the program, including Lapstone, Ourimbah and Niagara Park.

Works for each station generally include the installation of lifts, staircases, ramps and paths. Works also include regarding of car parks, building and platform works. For each project, Pulse Acoustics conducted an assessment of the construction noise and vibration impacts at the surrounding residential and non-residential receptors.

Each project utilised a 3D noise model of the subject site, including site terrain, buildings, ground absorption and receiver locations. Proposed construction activities were modelled, with predicted impacts at surrounding receivers given.

Pulse Acoustics worked with Transport for NSW to provide noise and vibration control recommendations to protect the amenity of surrounding receptors. Reporting was conducted to the TfNSW standard, with the Noise and Vibration Impact Assessments exhibited for public comment.
